Of course you have to use clients which support the new file transfer
JEPs. Also, without error messages/XML it is not possible to say what
caused the problems.

It would probably help not to quote without context. Infinity said this
concerning the problem that a Jabber client can't query the server for its
IP (which is not directly related to file transfer).
